SHOP.COM, the e-commerce platform of parent company Market America and the game-changing leader of online marketplaces that places its shoppers at the forefront of every innovation, is once again recognized by Internet Retailer as a pioneer of the industry. This time, SHOP.COM has ranked #12 in the Primary Merchandise Category for the 2019 Top 500 Database and analysis report. This prestigious recognition arrives in the very same year that Internet Retailer ranked SHOP.COM #36 in its annual ranking of the Top 100 e-commerce sites, thus continuing a seemingly unstoppable streak of accolades and industry-wide acclaim that further substantiates what everyone already knows: SHOP.COM is a powerhouse and one of the true heavy hitters in e-commerce.
Internet Retailer hails 2019 as the year that shaped the future of e-commerce. According to its insights and analyses, by the end of the year consumers will have spent close to $3.5 trillion in online shopping — a substantial increase over last year’s numbers and a trajectory that is only expected to continue. As digital retailers and online marketplaces change the way we shop, sites such as SHOP.COM are positioned to have the largest impact. Internet Retailer’s report finds that online marketplaces like SHOP.COM accounted for more than 50% of global online sales in 2018 alone — a collective $1.66 trillion worth of purchases.
These staggering figures are only going up and as e-commerce websites continue to generate more and more in sales, that means more than just an influx of business and revenue for SHOP.COM. It means more satisfied customers, with better experiences for loyal shoppers and more rewards for their purchases.
The site’s flagship Shopping Annuity empowers shoppers to invest in their future as they purchase everyday essentials, which allows them to convert spending into savings with products they already buy. And the site is frequently lauded for its generous Cashback program which, to date, has paid almost $45 million in Cashback to shoppers on most purchases made through the site. There’s little doubt that SHOP.COM will continue to outperform much of the competition in the coming years and deliver the goods in terms of revenue generated that goes right back into our economy. But it will also continue to deliver for its loyal customers and, at the end of the day, is what sets the site apart.
